Bob Mackie's Tulip Print Boat Neck Caftan with Tank
Apologies to Bob - but my way
I wear this top ALL Spring/summer and Indian summer....Apologies to Bob because I immediately removed all the side stitching and wear it as a poncho top and never with the tank. It just floats down over all of my summer tees. I have it in the lavender and it is astonishing how many soft muted tee shirt colors this works over. Bob is probably cringing at my modifications but I get compliments whenever and wherever I wear this. I have had SO many woman comment on it's beauty wherever we travel. As a poncho there is no constriction of movement so it is just floaty and breezy and contributes to my coolness whenever I wear it. If I'm dressed down and just wearing a tee and slacks and we want to go out - I grab this and float it down over my head and I'm instantly dressy to go out. It does NOT slip around over all of my cotton tees and just looks fabulous! Thanks Bob.
Practical & Beautful
I absolutely love my caftan. It is beautiful and hides all of my imperfections. It is perfect for dining. It hides your stomach and because it is synthetic all of your dining mishaps are easily washed away. Now I want one in another color.
Not for Petites, but beautiful!
Love it, wish I could keep it, but I am 5' 1" and this top is just too long for us Petite gals....about 3 inches too long. And because of the side seams can not take it up. Bob, please make this top for us 4'10" - 5'3" gals!
I have to say that this is one of my favorite tops...and I have a lot of caftan and tunic style flowy tops. I bought the yellow and am always getting compliments in it. I wear a large and the size was perfect. The tank is very soft and not form fitting, just very very comfy. The whole set is comfortable and just cries out for oohs and aahs from others. I wish there were other brighter colors. The yellow was the only one I would buy because I like brighter colors. Still, even the yellow isn't terribly bright, just a beautiful shade.
Unworthy of your name
Mr. Mackie, your name should not adorn such poor quality and cheaply made garment.
You are diluting the glamour of your signature.
Soft and Pretty
I ordered this caftan in the pink. it's very pretty but the tank and caftan are a bit different in color and the fit is on the large side.
ORANGE SHERBERT ANYONE?
Thank you Bob!! Simply a beautiful, classy & comfortable piece. This plus-size gal is very appreciative. This piece makes me feel very pretty!
I ordered this in yellow size 1X, but had to go on the waitlist. I just received it and I wore it right away. It is so beautiful, and I received many compliments, even one from a man. I just love this set and I am thinking about purchasing the pink as well.
I had ordered the yellow originally but had to return it for a smaller size. The yellow was bright and beautiful, but when it was no longer available in my size, I ordered the coral. It turned out to be an even better choice. The coral is a bit softer, and everyone looks good in coral.
Not for me
I'm very thin and petite. Weigh 100 lbs and almost 5'2. When I saw this in the models I thought it's beautiful but when I received and tried it on it didn't fit me right. I sent it back just because it doesn't look good on me, way too big. QVC need to get the sizing right. I'm not going to say I will never order any clothes from QVC. Please correct the sizing for Petite and Skinny Women!!!
lacks style and shape
Received this in the pink and found it to be unflattering when I tried it on. The quality of the material was mediocre and the overall drape was poor. I have sent it back. I have purchased and thoroughly enjoyed many Bob Mackie garments but this one was not up to par.
I bought two of these tops and they are very pretty.....however, I will return them as I just can't seem to make myself like them on me. If you like the caftan tops this one is a beauty. The tank fits nicely and true to size, i think if I had the top itself in a size down I would like it more on me but seems pretty big and too long for a short chubby girl. Its nicely made and the colors are beautiful.
